Postnatal Doula Services

Please contact me for a free initial consultation to talk about my services and answer any questions you may have.

As a Postnatal Doula I offer an individualised and flexible support package.

Too often there’s plenty of support to help you care for baby, but not enough focus on you! It’s normal to feel overwhelmed and absolutely exhausted at times, so it’s important to be nourished and cared for too.

Sometimes I support a family as a one-off, and sometimes the support can last anything from a few weeks to a couple of years.

Postnatal Support packages include:

  • planning for the postnatal period and chatting about expectations and the reality of having a newborn
  • postnatal visits with a flexibility to suit you and your family needs
  • helping you to debrief your birth experience
  • hold your baby while you get some rest
  • light shopping
  • nourish you with food
  • accompany you to doctor’s/hospital appointments
  • help with older siblings
  • assistance with pet care
  • signposting on feeding, crying, sleeping, babywear, if relevant
  • help you to adjust to your new way of life as a mum!

here are some reviews from my clients – read more here

    I got in touch with Anne when I found out I was pregnant with our third child. My first birth was a classic ‘cascade of intervention’, leaving me with ongoing gynae issues and a complete fear of childbirth. My second was an elective Caesarian due to breech baby. So I…

    I think that especially in Northern Ireland the conversation is more likely to be ‘have you thought about having a doula?’ as many people are still not familiar with the idea and the associated benefits. I would strongly encourage anyone to have a doula involved in their birth. I think…

    From the start Anne was supportive, understanding and helpful.  She listened to my concerns and through the birth of our daughter, her support was fantastic.  Anne really helped us to stay focused. Having Anne as our doula was awesome! 

    A friend of ours suggested that a post-natal doula might provide us with the support that we required.  She found Anne online and sent the details to Victoria.  There are currently very few doulas in Northern Ireland and so we did not interview more than one doula.  However, even if…

    I definitely recommend Anne as a doula, she is so considerate and is an absolute pleasure to work with. She’s friendly, energetic and makes you feel so so comfortable to be around.  From day one I knew Anne was the doula me and my partner wanted to help us birth…

    The worst thing about using a doula for the birth of my second child was that I was cross with myself for not doing it the first time around. During and following the birth of my first son I felt lost; decisions  were made that I later regretted. I felt…

    Thank you so much for your support during both pregnancy and (most importantly!) during labour.  It was invaluable having you there and I keep raving about how great doulas are to random pregnant woman!

    Anne visited me a couple of times, always taking her time to listen and getting to know my expectations.  She was very understanding with regards to my first experience at childbirth.  All I wanted was to have someone listening to my fears and wishes.  Anne was creative and supportive throughout…

    I had my first baby in the height of lockdowns and felt my birth wishes were steamrolled. When I found out I was pregnant again I knew this time I needed a doula and thankfully found Anne. As soon as my husband and I met her we knew we needed…

    Thank you for educating, empowering and supporting us through our birth journey, and for making the process enjoyable, exciting, magical and full of love.  I will always be grateful we found you.
